The images in these videos are composed of cut out and enlarged facial parts of ‘talking people’ whom I captured from television programs such as newscasts, talk shows and reality shows. Those images are magnified in order to create a focused frame on mouth, eyebrows and eyes. Inhaling and exhaling sounds, pauses and exclamation words coming from the centerpiece accompany the visual recordings. The basic idea stems from an urge to find a sincere and personal gesture that I can relate to in those television programs. On the other hand, when those instantaneous individual movements and sounds are juxtaposed to each other, they become mechanical and transform into an action, which spectators imitate, and thus reproduces its fake copies.
